Remember lil’ “Ahmad” from Showtime’s “Soul Food” series? He played the pre-teen son of “Maxine” (Vanessa A. Williams’ character) and “Kenny” (Rockmond Dunbar’s character). His real name is Aaron Meeks and he’s pretty much stayed out of the spotlight lately, but we found him and could NOT believe it had been THAT long since we’ve seen this dude. He’s a 32 year old married man now! Okay…we’ll let that sink in for a second so we can all see just how Old School we really are, LOL. Now check out the grown up pics of Aaron Meeks and his wife below…

Here is 32 year old “Ahmad” a.k.a. Aaron Meeks. As you can see, not much has changed about the brotha. Yeah he has a little more facial hair and muscles, but I’m pretty sure he can’t walk down a crowded inner city block without somebody saying “Isn’t that ol’ boy from ‘Soul Food’?” He’s aging gracefully. Like we mentioned earlier, Aaron has mostly stayed away from the entertainment world ever since 2007 or so. One thing is clear though, he’s a family man now and he spends a lot of time with his wife and step-kids. Check them out below…

Aaron and his wife, Shawntae, have been together for about 5 years and they’re still going strong. Shawntae recently thanked Aaron on Facebook for stepping up and being a wonderful step-father to her two beautiful children.


It turns out that Aaron Meeks wasn’t as young during his stint on “Soul Food” as we probably thought. He was on there from 2000 to 2004, from the ages of 14 to 18, although his character was portrayed as being about 5 years younger than that.
